Rickenbacker International Airport

Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK) is a public airport 10 miles south of downtown Columbus. The base was named for flying ace and Columbus native Eddie Rickenbacker. It is managed by the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, which also operates John Glenn Columbus International Airport. Since the completion of the current passenger terminal in 2003, Rickenbacker has acted as a secondary airport for Columbus and the airport has seen a number of carriers come and go. In 2012, low-cost carrier Allegiant Air launched service to Sanford and St. Petersburg, FL and has since been successful in expanding service to ten additional leisure destinations in the Southern United States.
